Duffy Unplugged


Picked up the latest issue of Spin Magazine, for some beach reading..and inside is a 16 page history of Jane's Addiction. Very cool if you are a Jane's fan..but the best part is this little tidbit......


"The best show they ever played was when they broke up onstage at the Limelight in New York. Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy of the Cult came out and started doing Led Zeppelin covers with them. Backstage, Dave Navarro was incredibly drunk. Right in the middle of Billy Duffy's guitar solo, Dave came out and unplugged him and just started wailing on the solo. Duffy was kind of strumming on his guitar, like "What the fuck just happened?" and walked offstage.
Then Perry and Dave went wild and got in a fistfight. Perry threw him into the drums, and the whole set just fell apart."

:lol: would pay big money for a photo of Mr. Duffys expression at that moment...

anyhoo, the article also has the Jane's Addiction version of how the whole Lollapalooza thing came about....

it is what it is.......

taken from the article


Ted Gardner: "Jane's were due to play the Reading Festival [on their last tour], but Perry lost his voice and we couldn't play.
Stephen Perkins and I still went [to England] and we met up with Marc Geiger from Triad Artists Agency[who represented Jane's Addiction].
Mark and I were lamenting the fact that America did not have a music festival along the lines of Reading.
So we came back from Europe for the American leg of the Jane's tour, and Marc brought up the idea. "Why don't we invite a bunch of our friends to play on the tour and create something like Reading."
Marc Geiger planted the seed. Perry watered it, christened it, and when it popped up it was Lollapalooza."

Dayle Gloria: "Perry approached me and Mike Stewart about doing Lollapalooza with him- when he'd just had the idea. We had dinner at Tommy Tang's[restaurant], and me and Mike were looking at him like he's a total nut. Of course millions of dollars later......."

Pleasent Gehman: "I can totally see how Perry would have been inspired to start Lollapalooza, coming from places like Scream, which always had really diverse bills. There'd be some total punk band, some speed metal and some band that was kind of arty and melodic. All playing on the same night. he knew it would work, and he took it to the bigger national level."




*one little side note, one of those bands listed as playing at the Scream back in the day....death cult*:cool:
